THE LAST PASSENGER


The Last Passenger by Will Dean
Narrated by Jenny Funnell
Genre: mystery
Format: ebook & audiobookAudiobook


When Caz steps onboard the exclusive cruise liner RMS Atlantica , it's the start of a vacation of a lifetime with her new love, Pete. On their first night they explore the ship, eat, dance, make friends, but when Caz wakes the next morning, Pete is missing.

And when she walks out into the corridor, all the cabin doors are open. To her horror, she soon realizes that the ship is completely empty. No passengers, no crew, nobody but her. The Atlantica is steaming into the mid-Atlantic and Caz is the only person on board. But that's just the beginning of the terrifying journey she finds herself trapped on in this white-knuckled mystery.

My Thoughts:
I thought that this book must be a paranormal thriller because when you suddenly become the only passenger in a golliath-sized liner with everybody disappeared without a trace, that is paranormal to me. People just don't vanish into thin air in the middle of the ocean.

I would do exactly Caz did. Call for help. Mayday on the radio...

By the way, just how old is Caroline Ripley?

Caz is too stupid to live (TSTL). First, she believes that she can leave the ship whenever she wants after being forced to participate and starved? Then she believes in Peter still after leaving her in the ship. **sigh** I do not like stupid heroines.

There is no plot. Just a story of a pseudo-reality show of people in a ship. Then it ends in a big whooping cliffhanger. I'm not fond of cliffhangers.

This is my first Jenny Funnell audiobook and I like the way she reads. Her attempt at a Welsh accent is not bad.
